Best Desert Safari

Best safari in dubai! Great service, awesome tour guide! We had a great time! The food is really good too!
Best tour of my life, worth every penny! Amazing! Thank you Matti!

Hi Matti guide dear! This review is for you!: I went on a solo trip to Dubai and my day #1 I happened to book this tour and I was the luckiest because I happened to have the best tour guide ever!! He happened to also be a professional photographer and seriously took the most amazing pictures of me and the sweet German family that was in the car with me for free!! I am still amazed at how good he was! He also happened to be one of the best drivers for the sand dunes and made it so much fun. Matti is so passionate about what he does and he was non-stop trying to make the entire tour the best it could be and he went out of his way the entire time! I am so thankful that I had him as my tour guide and thankful for this tour as a whole, and it was 100% better than I expected. The dinner/food was wonderful, and the dancing, music, and shows were absolutely incredible (my favorite was the dancing fire!) The camel ride during the sunset was also unbelievable! The camels were treated well (I had read a review that they have been mistreated but not in my tour at all, so I am assuming/hoping that it was a one time thing and that it did not happen again). Thank you again Matti for giving me an experience of a lifetime! I would do this tour over and over again!

Readers need to know that Sharaf is who you should request for this excursion in dubai when booking through Viator, we had a very unpleasant encounter with another tour guide with this company whom was very rude to us so much so that we made a formal complaint with Viator and they did refund us. Sharaf did everything within his power to make sure that in spite of his coworker(which was another tour guide) did not ruin our day which was also a birthday we were celebrating, Sharaf went above and beyond to help us get past the incident and apologized to us on behalf of his co-worker and the company he also made sure that the other tour guide gave us an apology yet off course it came with an excuse. My thought is if you have one combative worker you have more so as stated before I would request Sharaf if you proceed with this company so that you are respected and valued as a customer.

Wonderful experience! This is a must when visiting Dubai! Siddik went above and beyond to ensure that we had a pleasant time and got to do everything we wanted. He suggested the best photo-ops and made being in the hot desert as comfortable as possible!
Perfect experience

All day fun

Had the best time with Arafa our guide! I did not expect the Red Dunes riding to be rollercoaster-like but it was and it was so much fun. The tour is very long so worth the money and the food was great. We had a fun time throughout the entire trip. The Camel ride is short but I like that as they don't stress the camels too much. I would definitely do this trip again and if you're thinking about trying it or whether these guys are reputable, they are! Ask for Arafa!!
